=ADK= ARK Server Development Log

Recommended Posts


Most Recent Notes: March 21

All Servers:

  • The Auto decay period for structures has been reduced on all servers EXCEPT Aberration, Extinction and Scorched Earth
    • Previously (Before extinction release) we didn't use auto decay, structures would become demolishable by players at a rate of two times default (Roughly 14 days for wood, and 21 days for stone) This allowed players to return with plenty of time to reclaim their structures if they had to be away. 
    • The release of extinction changed something and structures were no longer becoming demolish-able meaning that the only people on the server who could remove abandoned structures were admins. - As a fix I implemented the auto demolish timers at twice the rate of our decay timer (Meaning 28 days for wood and 42ish for stone)
    • Its become clear that this is not going to work for servers like Ragnarok, and the auto demolish timer is reduced to the original double rate we allowed before extinction patch broke the player allowed demolish.
    • This change will not be applicable to Aberration, Extinction and Scorched as these are servers that players are less likely to main, and set up as farming hubs that may not need to be visited as often (They are lower population servers anyways so there are less structures littered there)'
    • Fast decay of unsnapped core structures (Foundations and pillars) should now properly be enabled.  - I missed a check box, im a nub. Basically this means don't pillar or foundation spam.
  • The server restart schedule is being changed to daily at 4:00 am CST
    • Wild Dino wipes will remain on restart - I know I told people that I was going to change it when I changed the server restart schedule, but it turns out that the 72 hour timer starts on server start, and were restarting every 24 hours, so a wild dino wipe would never happen. 
  • Added RCON Shaming for people who wait for the 1 minute mark to log off for an update.
  • Every time a dino wipe happens, the server will leave behind wild beehives, but kill all the tamable bees inside. Players were coming across instances of upwards of 65 beehives in a single spawn. Admins will be executing a command to removed the beehives hopefully once or twice a week, maybe less on the lower population servers. If you are having an issue on some of our lower population servers and would like the hives removed for you, please notify an admin in Discord.


  • Dino spawns are back to normal after our attempts to correct some of the server lag
    • Reducing the dinosaur spawns to 50% did not have enough effect on the server to warrant changing
    • We hope that the above destruction of bee hives and the daily restarts will correct a lot of the issue.
  • Added back the Multiple Unicorn allowed .ini option
    • This was something that slipped through the cracks when we swapped over to the new box last year
    • I would not hold my breath on this working however as a lot of people of the internet claims that it no longer works. If this is the case we may have to implement a rule disallowing unicorns to remain out unless breeding raising or using. =(


  • Fixed the crafting cost of speed saddles so that players are not required to mind-wipe into full weight to craft the material needed to make the saddles
    • Reduced cost of special item, increased amount of special item required per saddle, overall cost has stayed pretty much the same.


NOTE: At time of posting some of the changes posted may only take effect as of next restart. Restarts are scheduled daily at 4:00 am CST
